Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts and Onions

Think you hate Brussels Sprouts? Maybe you just haven’t had them prepared right. If you start off with thinly sliced sprouts, they cook quickly.


Balsamic Glazed Brussels Sprouts and Onions


  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 large sweet onion, roughly chopped
  • 10 ounces brussels sprouts, shaved (see below)
  • ¼ cup balsamic vinegar
  • ¼ cup water
  • Fine sea salt and ground black pepper, to taste


Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add onion and sprouts, saute until slightly crisp and golden all over, stirring often. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper, pur vinegar and water over. Cover with a lid and steam until tender, about 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning, and serve immediately.

Serves 4 to 6 as a side dish.

To prep Brussels Sprouts:

Either buy your sprouts prepped for you or use the side of a box grater to shave them (the side that acts as a mandoline – that looks like a slot). Or, you can simply cut the sprouts thinly with a knife.
